In brief

A world première and the return of two choreographic works with unusual sources of inspiration. Patrick de Bana signs his first creation for La Scala’s Ballet Company and its étoiles; amid mythology, culture, scents and icons of a Spain filtered through his personal experience he will revive the essence of Carmen, passionate heroine dressed in freedom. One of Angelin Preljocaj’s most emblematic works, Annonciation is a female duet that interprets the touching mystery of the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary with the emphasis on the relationship between the spirit and the body, interior and exterior, Mary’s inner upheaval at the apparition of the angel. Philippe Kratz finds inspiration for Solitude Sometimes in the story from the Amduat of the descent into the underworld of the sun god Ra. Kratz leads the La Scala artists on a journey though Egyptian mythology in a work that is abstract in its essence but populated by symbolic elements: catharsis, rebirth, cycle of life, and the resilience of the individual set to the electronic music of Thom Yorke and Radiohead.
